This book has set the agenda for contemporary Continental philosophy, arguing for a new theory of radical democracy in politics and art. A Thousand Plateaus completes the landmark philosophical project, Capitalism and Schizophrenia, which Deleuze and Guattari began with Anti-Oedipus. Together, the two volumes are widely regarded as the single most brilliant work of Continental philosophy of the last 40 years.
